Dear SEEDIG community,

Following several discussions within the Executive Committee and with 
our partners in Moldova, we would like to provide some updates regarding 
the plans for SEEDIG 7.

As already announced before and during SEEDIG 6, Moldova is kindly 
willing to host the next SEEDIG meeting, if the global and regional 
health circumstances allow it. Based on this year's experience, the plan 
is to have SEEDIG 7 in September 2021 (exact dates to be determined). At 
this point, however, it is difficult to assess whether we will be able 
to indeed meet in Chisinau next September. This is why we would like to 
kick start the planning process in January and consider different 
scenarios for the format of SEEDIG 7 (in situ meeting, online meeting, 
hybrid meeting). As we go ahead with the usual planning work (please see 
an indicative timeline here [1]), we will continue to assess the 
situation and adapt accordingly. A final decision on the format of 
SEEDIG 7 should be taken by mid-May 2021.

We would like to host an online public meeting in the week of 7 
December, to discuss the overall plans for SEEDIG 7 and collect 
suggestions and ideas on topics such as the call for issues, the 
approach for building the programme, the meeting format, etc. (while 
also considering the SEEDIG 6 experience). To help us identify a 
suitable day and time, we kindly invite you to fill out this Doodle poll 
[2] by Friday, 4 December, 12:00 noon CET.

On a different note, we would also like to inform you that the partial 
election process for the Executive Committee will be launched in January 
(once the holiday season is over); an election calendar will be 
developed meanwhile.

Thank you!

Best regards,


(on behalf of the SEEDIG Executive Committee)
